Adopted – 7/16/1998
Revised – 11/1/2012
The Board of Education desires to provide a free and appropriate public education to all individuals with disabilities, aged 3 – 21 years, who reside in the district, including children who have been suspended or expelled or placed by the district in a nonpublic school or agency services.

Students shall be referred for special education instruction and services only after the resources of the regular education program have been considered, and where appropriate, utilized. (Education Code 56303)

In order to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities and employ staff with adequate expertise for this purpose, the district participates as a member of the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA).

The Superintendent or designee shall extend the district’s full cooperation to the SELPA. The policies and procedures of the SELPA shall be applied as policies and regulations of this district, with the exception of those that apply to complaints, unless the local plan specifically authorizes the district to operate under its own policies and regulations.

The special education local plan area shall administer a local plan and administer the allocation of funds. (Education Code 56195)
